Note from the Pastor:
Thank you for visiting our website. We are a fellowship of believers who acknowledge that every man, woman and child suffers from a devastating disease diagnosed as rebellion. This rebellion is directed toward God himself. You see, mankind from the beginning, rejected the leadership of God and chose rather to live in a kingdom where self was honored first. As a result of this choice, all kinds of sin and evil began to permeate our lives, families, communities and world. What is God’s solution to this spiritually fatal condition? His son, Jesus. The Gospel is the message that Jesus is God’s Son. As God in the flesh, Jesus left heaven and came to planet earth and was born of a virgin named Mary. Jesus, both God and human, lived for approximately 33 1/2 years. During that space of time, He proved to all the eyewitnesses that he held power and authority over the natural world and the spirit world
During His stay on earth, He was exposed to temptations of every kind but He never caved and therefore lived a sin-free life. This enabled Him to fulfill the prophecies of old and provide the payment for our rebellion and evil through His sacrificial death on the Cross. The life of Jesus did not end in the grave. He defeated death three days later when He came back to life and exited the tomb. Then Jesus left an insurmountable amount of proof that He had been resurrected in His appearances, conversations and even evidence recorded for us in secular history.
To present this message to a constantly changing culture is the goal of our church family. At FBC, we believe that Providing an environment for people of all ages to learn and grow in their relationship with Jesus is a personal responsibility of each one in our fellowship. Helping families raise children who make the choice to journey through life with Jesus as their King is our vision. When it all boils down, First Baptist Church is seeking to honor God by developing fully devoted disciples of Jesus who live for Him, love Him, and seek to share Him with others.
